The pace of digital transformation, an uncertain economic outlook, and evolution of business management techniques, have altered a CFO's (Chief Financial Officer) role in MENA and world over, from being just "number crunchers" to strategic advisors playing a key role in enterprise decisions. Aiming to help business leaders adapt to this changing landscape, Naseba is organizing the 10th CFO Strategies Forum MENA on November 6-7, 2016 at Sofitel, The Palm in Dubai. Held under the theme of "Prepare, transform and grow your business", the event acts as a platform to discuss various opportunities and challenges that CFOs face in the current economic climate, and how they can tackle them.

In addition to these, the Forum provides an opportunity to build professional relationships with its networking sessions.
